Chairman’s Update April 2023

The latest update from the CLASP Chairman is now available.

CLASP brings local archaeology enthusiasts together to investigate their local past.

Our members, all volunteers, are technically led by our professionally qualified Archaeological Director, himself a volunteer. Members are encouraged and enabled to learn skills for themselves, both formally and ‘in the field’, to become confident and self-sufficient in all aspects of archaeological investigation.

CLASP also provides talks and lectures as part of its commitment to encouraging local communities to ‘own’ their archaeological heritage.

Join us! (It’s only £10 per annum!)
